You know you're always all like, "Life is okay for me, I guess. I just can't help feeling, though, that there's some part of me that missing. A hole shaped sort of like a photo of New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg chilling with Jersey Shore's Snooki and The Situation, but not regular The Situation… The Situation wearing only doucheglasses and a necktie"?
Well, you're welcome…
Now, will you please get on with your life?

Earlier today, I attempted to express exactly how impressed I've been recently with Gov. Palin's tenacity at proving to America that she is a serious politician who is ready to lead this great nation.
Turns out I could have saved some time by just linking to this article comparing Palin to another equally important female role model from The A.V. Club's Amalie Gillette.

Gabriel Delahaye pretty much sums it up over at Videogum…
Leave it to Sway to ask the questions no one else
dared thought wantedfelt was even remotely appropriate or relevant to ask.
You can almost see Barack Obama's face melt off his head at the beginning, but then he catches himself and makes sure that his face doesn't melt off his head. Meanwhile Joe Biden's like "Hip hop? Never heard of him."
Man, when we can't trust Sway and whatever that one girl's name is — you know, the one who looks like that other girl who used to work there — from MTV News to hit the hard questions facing America's Hip Hop moguls, who cab we trust?

Last week, I* met up with stand-up comedian and MTV Street Team's New York correspondent, Sara Benincasa, to eat some white trash food and drink some Pabst Blue Ribbon. She's quite funny and attractive and intelligent and has a kind of Tina Fey air to her, except that she doesn't (yet) have a restraining order registered against me.
Anyhoo, she recently interviewed me and 23/6's Lee Camp (who does not resemble Tina Fey but does have a restraining order against me — I like his hair) in which she asks the two of us to shed some light on what is and is not funny about politics, politicians and political politiciness.
I somehow managed to fake my way through the interview without revealing that I'm just next door to being retarded.
You can read the interview here.
And you can read all of Ms. Benicasa's MTV posts here.
And you can see a video of a little kid biting another little kid's finger here.
* There are a bunch of other people who also write for this blog, but since I'm me, I used the pronoun "I." Hope that didn't confuse anyone.
Look what Barack Obama has gone and done with all his handsome hoping and multi-million dollar messaging and cool fonts. He has created a living hell for people like Rep. John Lewis (D-Ga.), an old stick-in-the-mud who risked his life to end segregation and spent several decades fighting for civil rights.
Thanks to the big B.O., Lewis is staring down the barrel of his toughest challenge yet…
Today, Lewis faces his first primary challengers since 1992, a pair of candidates who are promoting the "change" mantra of Sen. Barack Obama's presidential campaign and have organized their campaigns around a single, not-so-subtle message: Lewis's support for Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton (D-N.Y.) over Obama in the presidential primary.
Lewis is one of three House Democratic incumbents in Georgia who should be enjoying an easy run through today's primary but instead find themselves battling a wave of younger black politicians emboldened by Obama's success and intent on succeeding their elders in choice political posts.
Yeah! Change! And much as scissors beats paper, change beats old, so you square incumbent types better step aside. Especially if you supported She Whose Name Must Not Be Spoken. There's a new wind blowing, and it is picking up some remarkable debris, like a former Real World cast member…
In Georgia and elsewhere, some of the initial targets have been lawmakers who backed Clinton instead of the first black candidate to clinch a major party's presidential nomination. In Brooklyn, Rep. Edolphus Towns, 73, a Clinton supporter, faces opposition in a Sept. 9 Democratic primary from community activist Kevin Powell, 42, who once was a star on MTV's "Real World."
A commitment to bad denim and picking fights with Eric Nies. You know what that is?
Change you can totally believe in.
